Nearly two years ago, over a month before the decision was handed down in the Citizens United v FEC case, Public Citizen's Legislative Representative Craig Holman was a guest on Tell Somebody and he explained the origins of the case, how the Supreme Court expanded it in an unusual way in June, 2009, and why it was such a vitally important case.  The November 8, 2011, edition of Tell Somebody re-aired that interview.

The show starts out with audio from a protest at the site of the new Kansas City nuclear weapons parts plant that was part of a War Tax Resisters National Meeting  protest that was held in Kansas City November 4-6th.
